Has anyone ever heard of a broody White Rock? We've had White Rocks for years, and have never had one turn broody. All I've read of them says that they do not get broody and eggs have to be artificially incubated or given to another type of hen to hatch. However, one of my young White Rocks, she's about a year old, seems to be sitting on eggs. We have one nest box up in the rafters of my horse barn (since the White Rocks and the Auracanas and the Buttercups all want to go UP to lay eggs ) and last night she would not leave the nest to go to the coop. When we tried to swoosh her out of the nest (which usually all it takes if they try to roost somewhere like that at night instead of heading back to the coop), she growled and pecked my daughter's hand. So we left her there and turned off the lights figuring she'd just roost there and come out in the morning. The White Rocks can be a bit stubborn and aggressive, and we thought she just really wanted to stay there for the night. But this morning, she's STILL sitting on the nest and shows no desire to move. Hasn't come down to eat or anything with the rest of the hens. I swear she's acting broody! Since the nest is fairly far from the feed and water area, we'll probably put some small containers of feed and water up there with her (it's a long nesting box, all open--not divided into sections or anything, that most of the hens share, so there is plenty of room for some feed and water). As a matter of fact, one of the Buttercups went up there to lay as she usually does, and the White Rock growled at her and the Buttercup turned around and left. Anyone every had a White Rock get broody? Will it last, or will she lose interest after a few days?
